    Help a girl out here: I need to refresh my bass chops, and going into the music forum with no one I know goes against my exponentially growing misanthropy tonight. So...bass riffs I'm practicing as I hibernate:

    Gil Scott Heron, "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised"

    Curtis Mayfield, "Superfly"

    Kindly add, please.

    Thik, Dude, these are long term projects. I was listening to Freewill for the zillionth time a few days ago and thought Geddy Lee's playing is so overshadowed by Neil Peart's crazy fills, etc. Like Chris Squire, Les Claypool, etc. these are folks I aspire to -- I know my limits. ;)
